Ancient gods in greenwood watch and wait

If only all of us could see our fate
Snow falls softly now on deer and crow
Ancient gods in greenwood watch and wait

Are we far too early or are we far too late?
If only all of us could see and know
Ancient gods in greenwood watch and wait

Can God hear our hearts, soft and inchoate?
Our prayers are cast aloft like seeds we sow
If only all of us could see our fate

The poor we trample, the rich we elevate
We stumble blindly, hoping yes and hearing no
Ancient gods in greenwood watch and wait

We dare go no further than the garden gate
We can only stand and watch the falling snow
If only all of us could see our fate

We dream the rising waters inundate
Far out to sea, a storm begins to blow
If only all of us could see our fate
Ancient gods in greenwood watch and wait
